...oh, but you will. You will. :-$

Things are about to happen in the coming issues that, to me at least, appear to set up some really interesting storylines. I'm guessing not everything will be explained, and that's where the Windblade mini-series comes in. Definitely up for it. :D

On another note, James Roberts has suggested two theme songs for Megatron, after the solicits came out. :D

I've been reading back through the last few years and have an alternative fate for Rodimus. At two times in the past he's avoided taking on a wider leadership role (first going off and leaving it to Bumblebee on Earth and then later going off on a quest instead of helping the consolidation on Cybertron). Most recently in the dead universe Hardhead asked him point blank would he go back to Cybertron if Optimus asked him to. Rodimus has always aspired to leadership, but lacked the maturity to take on the role. His "quest" on the lost light has helped him grow in that respect. Perhaps with Optimus deciding that he must return to Earth, he finally asks Rodimus point blank to return to Cybertron - Rodimus keeps saying (and seems to believe in) "till all are one" - which means that he might function as a unity figure for the Autobots, Decepticons, and non-aligned (consider his status in Autocracy) in a way that Bumblebee and Starscream seemed to be unable to.

Or he might end up dying to taking down Nova Prime ot Galvatron, saving Orion Pax in a reverse version of Optimus saving Hot Rod back in the G1 movie.

Boom, James Roberts teaser for MTMTE!

There's gonna be some trouble
A whole house will need rebuilding
And everyone I love
Will recline
On an analyst's couch quite soon

No offence to James Roberts, but this song feels more like the theme to Megatron to me anyway.

Those themes are in context to the comic, by listening to them you can get a feel to how Megatron will be portrait in the comic series and what he'll be about.

IDW Transformers April 2014 Dawn of the Autobots Pre-Order Codes

Postby Va'al » Sun Jan 26, 2014 1:44 pm

Motto: "Till All Are Pun!"
Can't wait to get your hands on the three, yes, three new series (or seasons) of the post-Dark Cybertron comics from IDW? Worry not, here's a sure-shot way of making sure you get that cover you really want, from your own store, as well as ensuring sales - which means more comics in the future! Authors Mairghread Scott (Windblade), John Barber (RID) and James Roberts (MTMTE) have released the pre-order codes for their respective series, all noted below - make a note and take them to your local comic store.

Mairghread Scott wrote:And I’m giving you Windblade lovers a sneak peek at the Diamond order codes (because we’re cool like that). Take these magic numbers to your local comic store and place your orders, feel like a super-spy doing it. ;)

FEB140337 E TRANSFORMERS WINDBLADE #1 (OF 4) - This gets you the Casey cover IDW was showing off here:

http://tumblr.idwpublishing.com/image/73451204525


FEB140338 E TRANSFORMERS WINDBLADE #1 (OF 4) SUBSCRIPTION VAR - This gets you Sarah’s cover (which is currently my desktop and I am in love with).

And if you want Livio’s art (and who doesn’t) you’re gonna have to work a little harder. It’s the 10-copy Retailer Incentive, so you’ll need to ask your local comic book store peeps politely to order lots of issues and give you first dibs on it. But come on, isn’t this worth it?


John Barber wrote:Diamond order codes for Transformers RID #28 (Dawn of the Autobots) are: Regular cover: FEB140331
Sub cover: FEB140332

Regular is Casey W Coller; sub is Andrew Griffith (he'll be doing the regular covers from 29 on)


James Roberts wrote:You go to your comic book store and you say you want to pre-order Regular FEB140334 E TRANSFORMERS MORE THAN MEETS EYE #28 DAWN O/T AUTOBOTS

Regular FEB140334 sports the Casey W Coller cover. It is ace. You should buy lots. Just saying.

For the Alex Milne cover, quote 'Sub FEB140335 E TRANSFORMERS MORE THAN MEETS EYE #28 SUBSCRIPTION VAR'.

Alex's cover is being withheld because SPOILERS, but look me in the eye and tell me you don't think it's going to be awesome. It IS awesome.

Very cool! I've been itching to hear more about Bluestreak for some time now. So many teases about him and his mental health. He sounds like he will be a great addition to the rest of the crew. Only bad part is April is so far away :-(

Oh man! Bluestreek? That might mean we'll hear more about Veras Centralus, circa Stormbringer.

My question is: when will we learn more about Springer?

Have you picked up the most recent hardcover TPB of "Last Stand of the Wreckers"? That contained a bunch of bonus stories featuring Springer. One even about the post-LSOTW comatose Springer being cared for by Roadbuster.
If you've read Exodus, wanna read the War For Cybertron comic? PM me.

Yes, I read that one. And at the end he starts showing signs of life again. But I want more! Imagine when he meets Whirl after finding out he almost deactivated Springer!

I'm hoping with the announcement of Bluestreak that we will be getting a new Prowl figure. Would make sense in my book considering Prowl is a main character. I can dream can't I?

A reissue of the Universe 2.0 figure is more likely, methinks.

I can see Hasbro announcing an Asia Exclusive 3-pack of the Classics "Datsun" brothers.

Really cool, I like this more than the recent body he had in RID, although this is basically that just in the MTMTE art style.
Just this one emulates a gun alt-mode and looks less like a tank. Check out the things on his shoulders that kinda look like the hammer of a gun.
Really cool, it's going to be really interesting to see how him being on the lost light is going to play out.

Oh god, I totally missed that! I was so into the design and its symmetry that I managed to miss the missing fusion cannon.
I wonder if he just doesn't have one now, or if it's simply not in this design. I guess he won't have it on the ship as a sort of safety rule.

Oh wait, I remember now this one issue in which Tarn quotes one of Megatron's writings, in it Megatron states that he will carry his weapon until peace has finally come, and the image shows him holding the fusion cannon in two hands like an offering.
So maybe he discards it before he joins the Lost Light?

Me too. Is this upcoming voyager Megatron a new mold or a retool/redeco?
